There are many things that affect our wellbeing. To feel good, we need things to our everyday life, such as work, hobbies, challenges, social relationships and happiness. As said in HAMK's strategy, HAMK cares for its students and put effort in their well-being.
To support student's wellbeing, HAMK offers services of student well-being officer, student counselling psychologist and sports coordinator. They work in all HAMK's campuses in cooperation with tutor teachers, study counsellors, nurses, pastors and everyone connected to student services.
If the students feel that they need some support and want to talk with someone with full confidentiality, they can contact our student well-being staff. Need for support may include problems with studies, life crises, learning difficulties, relationship issues, economical problems, depression, stressing, intoxicants, eating, sexual issues etc.
Best way to contact student well-being staff is via email. Email and the telephone numbers can be found from the end of this page. Bookings can also be made via student councellors or nurses.
Student well-being officer and student counselling psychologist participate in some additional studies during the academic year. Selection of the studies can be found here.
Student well-being officer works as a contact-person for equal studying. He is also responsible for organising the special arrangements for students who need support in studying. Special arrangements are also available for people who apply to study in Hamk in their entrance examination. Link to a form for applying special arrangements can be found from the end of this page.
